MyAge to release a roadmap for muscle resilience research

October 25, 2023

The main deliverable from the two-year MyAge project has been to produce a roadmap document that sets out the priorities for future muscle resilience research and the approaches most likely to lead to a longer healthspan (the number of years we remain generally in good health).

MyAge network event, London, 21 November, 11:00-16:30 (networking from 10:00)

We have a few places remaining for the concluding MyAge full network meeting funded by the current UKRI award. Hear about the MyAge Roadmap and our ambitions for the future of muscle resilience research across the life course. Confirmed speakers include:

  • Dr Kambiz Alavian, MyAge Co-Lead, Dept of Brain Sciences, Imperial College London
  • Prof Carolyn Greig, MyAge Co-Director, School of Sport, Exercise and Rehabilitation Sciences, University of Birmingham
  • Prof Nicholas Harvey, Director, Medical Research Council, Lifecourse Epidemiology Centre, University of Southampton
  • Mr Andrew Mackenzie, Associate Director of Strategy and External Relations, The Physiological Society
  • Dr Annette Pantall, Population and Health Sciences Institute, Newcastle University and Axomics
  • Prof Judith Phillips, Research Director, UKRI Healthy Ageing Challenge, University of Stirling
  • Dr Sanjay Thakrar, Head of Research Policy and Awards, The Dunhill Medical Trust
  • Prof Matt Whiteman, Inventor, Co-Founder & CSO, MitoRx Therapeutics and Professor of Experimental Therapeutics, University of Exeter


We invite attendance from members of the MyAge network, other UK Ageing Networks, industry, UK funders and people interested in developing collaborative interdisciplinary research in muscle resilience across the life course. Due to space constraints, registration is essential.

Why should I attend?

  • An opportunity to find out more about the MyAge Roadmap, plans for the future and stakeholders’ responses to our recommendations
  • Network with members of UK Ageing Networks, business, funders and stakeholders in healthy ageing – start those collaborative conversations ready for future funding calls
  • Where funds allow, we will support early career researchers to travel to the event
  • All attending will benefit from lively interdisciplinary conversations around the key challenges in muscle resilience research.

What should I do now?

If you have not already registered and would like to attend, please contact to ask about availability, before the 1 November. If places are available we’ll provide a registration link.
